At its press event, LG showcased a 65-inch OLED panel which could be rolled up and hidden when not in use. While the company hasn’t shared any details about the display’s rolling mechanism or its core-specs, a rollable TV has quite a lot of practical applications. For starters, carrying and transporting the unit will be a lot easier andit will also add a more minimalistic look to a user’s room when not in use. LG has toyed with flexible displays in the past, with the G Flex 2 being the prime example, however, a rollable TV is the first for the company.
